Discount supermarket giant Aldi has submitted plans for a store in Montrose, which will create 30 jobs.
The German store bought the former Co-op shop on Basin View, which closed its doors on August 1 with 37 people losing their positions.
Aldi plans to demolish the existing building and erect a new foodstore.
The new outlet will create 30 full-time positions, according to the company.
Robert Stoddart, property director for Aldi Stores in Scotland, said: “I can confirm we have now lodged plans with Angus Council to build a new store in Montrose, having acquired the former Co-op in the summer.
“This is another major step forward in bringing the Aldi brand to Montrose shoppers but it is early days yet to speculate on a construction programme and opening date.
“We will, however, keep everyone up-to-date as matters progress through the planning process.”
Aldi’s proposed opening hours are between 8am and 10pm, Monday to Saturday, and 9am to 7pm on Sundays.
The former Co-operative building had been a food store for 37 years - the Co-op opened in 2010 and previous to that it was run by Somerfield.
